First Time Management Training

Taking the first steps as a manager or supervisor can be challenging and the role and responsibilities that come with it can easily be misunderstood.

A bespoke training programme tailored to meet your precise business needs can help aspiring and new managers to thrive in their new role.

Course includes:
› How to improve verbal and non-verbal communication skills with colleagues and customers
› The role of management in coaching, developing talent and new staff
› Performance management
› Understanding team dynamics



Delivered on your premises*, which reduces the amount of time staff are away from their job roles, this learning session is ideal for all staff, regardless of their prior knowledge.

Developed specifically to provide aspiring and first time managers with the skills and knowledge they need to be a successful manager. Staff are frequently promoted to positions of responsibility because they are successful in their current role but too few have the benefit of management training to ensure they can be successful managers.

Making links to your staff performance management systems and job specifications, learning activities are tailored precisely to meet your needs.

Aspiring and new managers will also benefit from taking the Everything DiSC® profile assessments. These assessments provide information about behaviours and are invaluable for new managers, helping them understand how to best manage staff with different behaviour characteristics.

Group learning sessions are best when there are at least five participants. Staff from different organisations can come together to make a large group. This has many advantages as staff can share their experiences, while maintaining confidentiality.

*If you do not have a suitable training venue, we can arrange an external venue.

Frequently asked questions

We’ve done lots of courses before, how will this be different?

It’s great that you and your staff already have an understanding of the subject. People always learn better if they can relate the learning to their workplace.

We take the time to find out what you really need and wherever possible build in references to your own policies and procedures, the documents you use and the expectations you have in the way that your staff respond and behave.

There’s a mixture of staff who have been working with us for a long time and some new staff, how will everyone benefit from the training?

Everyone has something of value to add to learning sessions. We can ensure that your new staff learn from those who have been with you longer and can capitalise on their experiences in working with you. We can also use the experience that newer staff have gained working elsewhere. Newer employees can bring a fresh perspective onto working practices and we can use these ideas to develop everyone’s skills and knowledge.

We are a small company and not everyone can attend the training at the same time. How can we benefit from your courses?

We work hard to minimise disruption to the workplace and can provide learning sessions at times to suit you. Some businesses find that short lunchtime sessions work well, others prefer an early start or a late finish, with sessions taking place before or after work. This might work for you and your staff. Alternatively, why not contact other businesses in your area and see if you can organise several group training sessions, with participants coming from each business. That way you can share the costs and everyone gets a chance to attend.

How will my staff get recognition for attending the training?

It is important that everyone records the learning in their CPD records and we can remind people to do this. We can also give ‘certificates of attendance’, which list the learning outcomes and can incorporate your logo if you wish.

Is any background reading needed before attending the training?

If your staff have different levels of awareness, it can be useful for everyone to complete some background reading before they attend. However, we know that this is not always possible and our experienced trainers can ensure that everyone’s knowledge is increased during the learning activities, whatever their prior knowledge level.

We have used Mary numerous times for various training needs. She is an excellent communicator and facilitator bringing a right blend of necessary information with practical experience.

Her professional yet relaxed style helps to put the message across in a friendly, but effective way. We will undoubtedly continue to use Mary’s services and would highly recommend her.
